Project Description

Maggie Magoo

Carole Fenwick

Carole trained as a surface pattern and textile designer and has also worked in the greetings card industry for a number of years. She designs colourful, contemporary home wares, stationery products and prints. Her work is inspired by nature, her love of pattern and mid century design and her passion for colour.

Carole is an avid collector of all things vintage and retro, especially fabrics and ceramics. Her most recent collection of work has been influenced by folk art, and she has also stepped away from colour with a bold black and white palette.

Carole works under the name MaggieMagoo Designs, which is named after her mischievous terrier Maggie. Carole’s favourite things to do are walking in the countryside with Maggie, taking in the gorgeous Yorkshire views, exploring the many beautiful little towns & villages, then ending up at a nice old pub, preferably with a pint of real ale and some chips and if she discovers a flea market or charity shop along the way that’s even better.

Folded Forest

Folded Forest is a creative partnership founded in 2016 by Ruth Viqueira and Sarah Peel. Together they design and make a range of limited edition prints, stationary and textiles, all screenprinted by hand in their small studio in West Yorkshire.

They find inspiration in the natural world around us; a walk in the woods, a hike in the hills or simply the view from a window. Many of their designs start as papercuts which are then arranged into beautiful patterns or scenes from everyday life, before being transferred to a screen for hand printing.

Ruth and Sarah carefully source their materials as they believe natural products complement the organic nature of thier designs. Each individual item is printed using high quality ink on to wood, linen or archival cotton paper. They take great pride in the quality and handcrafted nature of their work and like to work in small batches.

Rachel Red

Rachel is a printmaker, designer and print teacher.
In her own work she celebrates wild creatures, special places and folklore tales.

WILD CREATURES
A lot of her lino prints are all about the forest and those who dwell there. Whether woodpeckers and owls or wild boar and deer, she likes to portray the creatures in a simplified graphic habitat, taking references from mid-20th century design.

FOLKLORE FOREST
The mysteries of the forest and it’s inhabitants have led her to make a body of work inspired by Northern European fairytales, and in particular the ‘house in the woods’ architype within the stories.

SPECIAL PLACES
Some of her work celebrates special places. She depicts their wildlife, landscape, architecture and sense of place in screen prints which take some reference from the optimistic travel posters of last century.

She works mainly in linocut and screen printing but also loves monoprinting and collage. She uses her images to make products in paper, cotton, china and wood and together these form the Collections. She works from her studio at Northlights Art Studios in Hebden Bridge, where she has also become a print tutor in the adult education programme there. She is loving passing on the fantastic print teaching she received, sharing the knowledge and resources she has accumulated and making a space for people’s creativity to flourish.

Fiona Wilson

Fiona works with a variety of materials, wood, paper, cloth, stitch and printed matter to create work based on collections and narratives.  With a passion for colour her materials, texture and drawing are central to her work.

Paper and wood illustrate scenes from the landscape using a variety of drawing, collage and print techniques.

Tactile wooden blocks are created using printmaking and bound threads that create intimate groupings for the wall or to be displayed on flat surfaces.

No two pieces are ever quite the same due to the handmade process.
